Job Description

The dean is the chief academic and administrative officer of the College, appointed by and reporting to the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.  Today, with over 4,300 undergraduate and 600 graduate students, 110 full-time faculty–including 14 endowed professorships–and an alumni base of over 37,000, the Belk College of Business is one of the Carolinas’ largest business schools. The College is home to three undergraduate degree programs encompassing nine majors, with a 10th recently approved, six master’s degree programs, and two doctoral degree programs. The College also participates in several interdisciplinary graduate degree programs.

The dean will build upon the College’s strengths including partnering with the Greater Charlotte region and engaging with regional businesses to develop innovative and interdisciplinary programs and to meet the needs of employers and demands of students, while remaining well-positioned to advance research, education, and outreach. Much of this interdisciplinary work, which aligns the College well with the integrative research and curricular goals of the campus-wide strategic plan, is carried out across units reaching beyond the main campus to The Dubois Center and the greater Charlotte community.
